Center Grove schools will move its start date up by more than a week beginning in 2013.
The school board approved a new calendar for 2013-14 school year, which will begin Aug. 1 and end May 30.
That’s an earlier start and a later end than the 2012-13 school calendar, which begins Aug. 9 and ends May 23.
But the new calendar also adds longer breaks throughout the school year. The district’s fall break will be from Oct. 14-25, winter break is from Dec. 23-Jan. 2, and spring break is March 24-April 4.
Clark-Pleasant, Edinburgh, Greenwood and Nineveh-Hensley-Jackson schools, as well as the Central Nine Career Center, each have adopted similar calendars, but those calendars are being implemented this fall.
